Text SMS the Collection details to the drivers Mobile Phone

Text SMS the Collection details to the driver's Mobile Phone (Version 1405 and above)

You may at some point have an issue with a PDA(s) connecting to your ALPHA (dispatch) terminal which means your JOB OFFER is never received so in this instance
you can forward the job to the drivers mobile phone as an SMS TEXT MESSAGE
If you have different drivers for the same vehicle then MULTI COMPANY must be setup otherwise it will send the SMS to a One Car One Driver mobile number

To send the Text SMS Collection details to the drivers Mobile Phone change the dispatch machine to Manual Dispatch by selecting Ctrl and A together
if you mark the vehicle whilst on AUTO DISPATCH it will attempt to offer the job to a PDA that has lost its signal so set ALPHA to MANUAL DISPATCH
Then you need to MARK the PICK UP for that vehicle on ALPHA (dispatch terminal) by placing the blue bar over the job and entering the CAR NUMBER and ENTER and this will indicate the vehicle's number against the job
To forward the PICK UP to the DRIVER'S MOBILE PHONE you place the blue bar over the relevant job and select Ctrl and ENTER together
